According to Variety, New Line has pushed back historical epic The New World from its planned November 9th release date to a Christmas limited bow and a January 13 wide release.

The distrib prexy David Tuckerman said change was made because the film "won't be done in time" for a November 9th launch.

The pic, starring Colin Farrell and helmed by Terrence Malick, is getting a big kudos push from New Line, and the Gotham and L.A. holiday bow will qualify it for Acad consideration.
